Contemporary Gynecology: An Integrated Chinese-Western Approach
"We in Western medicine have much to learn about what practitioners or Eastern medicine have long practiced. Her practical strategies and case examples serve as a model for balancing Eastern and Western medical care. My congratulations on Dr. Liang's achievement—an excellent book."
Philip E. Chenette, MD, Pacific Fertility Center, San Francisco, CA
"In this comprehensive text, Dr. Liang shares her medical knowledge in the often daunting challenge of women's reproductive medicine. She thoroughly reviews each major gynecologic diagnosis and treatment with the thoughtful expertise that only 35 years of practice can provide. Many of my patients have benefitted from the combination of traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine. It is with great honor that I present Dr. Liang's latest labor of love."
Katherine T. Hsiao, MD, Board Certified Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
